If this is a new drive you will have to fdisk it and format it. It should have came with a cd driver disk to run before you plug it in. It will help you set everything up.

Damaged external hardrive


you have one option..take it down to a data recovery specialist(you may find one in our repair directory, by zip code) and cross your fingers that they can get something off that drive.

and in future, you may want to consider a remote backup for that drive.

Maxtor 3200 power supply problem


I plugged a HP laptop charger into the drive and all it did was flash, bought a new housing and no luck. Data recovery sites said that it sounded like hardware trouble and the recovery minimum is $800. I did some more searching and found a site called PCB Solutions that sells the circuit board. You have to provide all of the specs. for the drive. The cost was $39 and I received it in 4 days. I replaced the board and the drive worked and I recovered all of my data. The URL is:
